Fedora :: Get Back Old Alt+Tab Behavior In F15/GNOME3?

May 28, 2011

After upgrading to F15 I noticed that Alt+Tab behaves now differently. For example, if I have several terminal windows open, I can't cycle through all of them by just pressing Alt+Tab repeatedly. Now the system just displays one terminal icon and icons for each terminal window, but if I keep pressing Tab (Alt being down all the time), it does not switch the window.

I want back the old behavior of the Alt+Tab keys!

Ubuntu :: Reverting From Gnome3 Back To Unity?

Jun 30, 2011

I reverted back from Gnome3 to Unity using ppa-purge, but now I have 2 annoying issues: The launcher reverts back to its default after login/logout. Any extra items I "Keep in launcher" are gone. The clock is stuck in 12h mode and it doesn't take any new settings. 24h clock, showing seconds etc. all fail.

I have 2 different systems affected, one 64-bit and one 32-bit (pae kernel).

Ubuntu :: 64x Natty Install Using Gnome3 Ppa ( Official Ppa From Gnome3)?

May 5, 2011

I am trying to solve multiple issues with my 64x natty install using gnome3 ppa( official ppa from gnome3). I have this setup on two machines, one is a fresh install the other is a upgrade. They both have most of these issues. Here they are: 1) Nautilus will not launch from the favorites bar. It does launch from a shortcut on the desktop. It will not run from the terminal unless I am root. 2) Number lock is disabled at startup (enabled in my bios). I used to be able to enable after nattty had started, I no longer can, though num lock light is lit - number keypad does not work!

3) I have set gnome3 set to let nautilus draw the background and desktop, I get a white screen at boot until Nautilus is launched then I get a background and some desktop icons(no computer or network icons). If I plug in a usb drive the icon appears on my desktop, when I select it I loose the background and have to select it again.

4) Wireless randomly will drop the connection, have to reconnect, sometimes it will, sometimes I have to reboot. I have Fedora installed on a 2nd hard drive on the machine with a clean install and the only similarity is it displays the default desktop until I launch Nautilus, then my background and desktop are displayed with all of the icons. From there on out Fedora has none of these issues. I have used Ubuntu Gnome and XFCE as my only os since 6.0 and have never had this many problems. Both machines would not run the gdm because of Nvidia issues after the upgrade and clean install. I DO NOT want to give up on Ubuntu as I tell all my friends and family to use it.

Fedora :: Where Did 'Window Behavior' Go

Nov 27, 2009

There used to be an option within the Preferences section in Gnome for 'Window Behaviour' where you could change the behaviour of windows such as roll up on double click instead of maximize and that sort of stuff.I can't seem to find it on F12 and can't find anything else that allows me to adjust those types of behaviours.

Fedora :: Odd Widget And Desktop Behavior?

Jan 22, 2011

I'm running KDE on Fedora 13 and was trying to alter some display settings so that the windows wouldn't maximize when dragged to the edge of the screen. I did that, but at one point "Kwin" crashed, and now there's some odd things happening.

1. I get the "drag me" palm when I'm mousing over the desktop and if I click, I can drag the background around as if it were a window.

2. My "maximize" "minimize" and "close" buttons don't work.

3. It appears nothing in the titlebar of windows works: can't drag them, can't shade or do anything "clickable" -- close, min, max, nothing works.

I tried returning the settings to their original state but it didn't help.I tried restarting the computer too, and that didn't help. I'm guessing something crashed and a setting got hard set that shouldn't be. I'm also guessing that if I rename a .kde/something folder it will reset to defaults. What .kde folder should I play with?

Fedora :: Distinction Between F And Gnome3?

Jun 17, 2011

This may seem like an oddball question, but I ask because I don't know. When working with Fedora 15, which parts of what I see on screen are actually Fedora, and which parts of Gnome 3? I'm trying to understand where the separation lies between the OS and the shell, and I'm not quite clear when I'm "doing things" if I'm using a feature of Fedora, or Gnome 3. I know when I'm in a terminal window, that's the shell/Gnome3. But what else that I do is actually the shell, and not Fedora?

Fedora :: F15 Gnome3 Alternatives?

Jun 24, 2011

F15 running on my Dell Latitude 505 laptop. During installation (last week) I got "Gnome3 not fully supported - using fallback mode". I found out later that my Intel 855 video doesn't support 3D, which Gnome3 requires.

System seems to run fine and boots into fallback video. But I'd sure like to have access to my "desktop" so I can drag and drop folders, etc. there. Currently I now have to open the Desktop folder, and then drag and drop, etc. And without an "active" desktop screen, added devices (external drives, cameras, etc.) don't show up unless I open the Desktop folder. Is there an alternative to Gnome3 I can install? I assume without the need for 3D which my Intel video 855 doesn't support.

If there's an alternative or two, could someone point me to exactly how to install them? If there's a more appropriate forum here for this request,

Fedora :: Use Mikogo Under F15 Gnome3?

Jul 31, 2011

has anyone tried to use Mikogo under Fedora 15 with Gnome 3, i have tried with the instructions on the site but nothing happens, it might be because the app is not gnome 3 ready or something I am missing.[URL].. the way it is supposed to work, you just download it and run it like blender.. and it should start a task bar app (the reason why i think it does nothing) and then you can use it..

Fedora :: Live CD'S Unexpected Behavior At Installation

Sep 17, 2009

1 Choose install to free space on HD where Lenny was the only other OS. No windows this unit.

2. Progressed through disk one and 2 and at end of 2 when no question was asked concerning MBR I knew I had lost dual boot.

3. Fedora booted and I thought the first thing I will do is contact forum and see if I can correct these shortcomings. No internet access in Fedora and that was due I am sure to a choice at setup I did not realize.

4. So I put gparted live CD in, deleted that partition, rebooted to a black screen with word grub flashing cursor and sorry I forgot the text.

5. Went back with gparted to look over the partition and all I could see was the boot flaf was gone (If I remember right that is not a necessity as long as there is /. But I went to flags checked it again rebooted same screen. Obviously Fedora did something to MBR?

6. Deleted Lenny, reinstalled and here I am so someone satisfy my curious nature.

Fedora :: FC15 Hibernate Behavior Different From FC14

Aug 31, 2011

I have just upgraded my Lenovo T61 from FC14 to FC15. Under FC14, I had the system set up to hibernate when the lid was closed. When I opened the lid, the system would automatically come out of hibernation in just a few seconds and I would be back to where I was.

Under FC15, I have also set it to hibernate when the lid closes. When I open the lid, nothing happens until I tap the power button, and then it comes out of hibernation via some kind of reboot: I see the Lenovo splash screen, then the machine beeps and goes into a wakeup routine, which takes much longer than it did under FC14.

Fedora :: Remove Gnome3 In FC15?

Jun 28, 2011

I'm going to remove Gnome3 from FC15 and, possibly, install KDE. I'm not sure about the options I have for it:I saw I can remove just the gnome-shell package. This makes me wonder if it is possible to replace the gnome-shell functionality with a gnome-2 equivalent, getting some of the gnome2 back how much of gnome-related packages can I remove? For example, is it advisable to remove gdm in favour of kdm? Are there gtk/gnome programs that are "better" than kde equivalents and are thus best left untouched, along with their dependencies? finally, somewhat unrelated, do you know good tutorials for gnome2.X expatriates to learn modern kde?

Fedora :: No Fading Animation In Gnome3, F15?

Jul 25, 2011

I've recently decided to switch from KDE 4.6 to Gnome 3. I've always been a KDE user, since version 2, really. But I happen to really like the new look of Gnome. To me it looks more professional somehow. Very little in terms of distractions.On both my laptop and my desktop, I have installed the Gnome 3 packages through Packagekit and on both machines it runs nice and smooth. There is one difference, though. On the desktop machine, when I lock the screen, it goes to black instantly. On the laptop, it fades to black. I really like the look of the fading animation and I'd like the desktop machine to do the same, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to do it.

The difference between both machines is that the laptop has an Intel graphics card whereas the desktop machine has an Nvidia 6800 GT, with the proprietary driver running. I followed Leigh's excellent guide to install that driver and it works like a charm. I do have desktop effects in KDE 4, so I know the driver is installed and running. I also am able to run hardware accelerated games in Wine without a problem.Being new to Gnome, especially Gnome 3, I have no idea where to look for these kinds of special effects. The System Settings program seems sort of Spartan and the gconf-editor doesn't show me anything that I can relate to this fading effect.

Fedora :: PulseAudio USB Device Default Behavior Wrong

Feb 8, 2010

Based on my experience with external devices such as USB microphones and USB speakers, PulseAudio always defaults to the motherboard/built-in device rather than any USB device.My expectation is that if someone is using an external USB device to supplement what is on the motherboard/built-in, they are going to be doing that to overcome a limitation of the motherboard/built-in devices, and therefore it is logical that when external USB devices are present on a system, these be the default. (For example, I want sound from my beefy set of Logitech USB speakers and not from the tinny notebook speakers).

It is no problem for me to manually set/reset the active device, however I believe that the average user expects to plug in a USB microphone or speakers and assume that the system will automatically change the default. Furthermore without this action, some users not used to the Linux audio settings will be led to believe that the USB devices are not supported, when in fact it is simply a problem that they have not been selected for use rather than the motherboard/built-in devices.I think this warrants me entering a bug report, but I wanted to hear what others think before proceeding to enter a bug report.Is the default behavior of PulseAudio towards USB devices wrong? What do you think?

Fedora :: Recent Update Has Broken Laptop Lid Behavior

Mar 8, 2010

Problem surfaced roughly 2 days ago (March 6th, 2010). When laptop lid is closed, and then opened, the screen remains black. Hard reboot is usually needed. Problem occurs when behavior setting is set to close laptop lid -> suspend, and also when setting is set to close laptop lid -> blank screen. I haven't tested under other settings.

Expected behavior: gnome login prompt appears. Please note that the expected behavior occurred consistently until a few days ago. Additional details:
Intel driver.
Fedora 12.

Fedora :: FC12 - Weird Behavior With Video Resolution

Mar 26, 2010

I have FedoraCore 12 x86 DVD already installed since the last weekend, no Internet connection available yet for such PC for lack of time to work in such PC. Since two days ago my video resolution has a weird behavior (I only did one configuration change about pass 800x600 to 1024x768) and since there I never did other change video resolution, and with the new configuration I have been using Linux without problems. Now two days ago When I start up the PC and arrive to the login screen I can see clearly that the resolution for my all graphical interface can be 800x600.

After to enter to my account I see the follow behavior, that consist in load the graphical environment and changing to 1024x768 resolution. See my Photo01.png, after that the pointer of my mouse (black row) never is show, I must do something like Photo02.png to see the black row. My only solution by the moment is arrive to the configuration resolution (see Photo03.png) and only do click in Apply button to refresh all the environment and see the desired black row (pointer), see Photo04.png, but I must do this each time when I start up the PC.

Fedora :: Interleave Windows From Several Applications In GNOME3?

May 28, 2011

I have yet another minor source of confusion in GNOME3... Imagine this: you have opened several terminal windows which cover most of your desktop, and a Firefox browser window. In Firefox you have an image which contains some data that you must type to one of the terminal windows. Since the data is in an image (not as a text), you can't use cut & paste to transfer it from Firefox to terminal.

In GNOME2 (and Windows), you can interleave the Firefox window and the terminal window so that the terminal window is on top of the Firefox window. You can place the terminal window so that it does not cover that part of the Firefox window which contains the data that you must type to the terminal window.

But in GNOME3, if I activate the terminal window, all open terminal windows are shown on top the Firefox window. In order to see the Firefox window again, I have to minimize or move those terminal windows which cover the part which I want to see while typing into the one terminal window. I think this is clumsy. Is there any way to switch back to the GNOME2 behavior which allows interleaving windows from different applications?
